I believe in ant armies marching

If a child is raised by lots of adults,
(see Judy Garland), then the child
becomes troublesome earlier because
the child acquires adult habits without
a peer group of similarly naive
children to retard their experimentation
by the prurience natural to children.
They tend to get bad habits one at a time.
HTML is a naive design from childlike
minds. As long as one stays in the
sandbox, it works remarkably well.

If you want to innovate rather
than simply reappropriate,
in the spirit of James Brooks and
the Tracy Ullman show, "disallow
notes from the network executives,
and take no prisoners". Some
go on to say... "and the horse
they rode in on" but don't go that
far. You may need the horse later
for plowing or a quick getaway.
Stay on good terms with the horse.
